PART I: INTRODUCTION

University Profile
Carnegie Mellon University has rapidly evolved into an internationally recognized institution with a distinctive mix
of world-class educational and research programs in computer science, robotics, engineering, the sciences, business,
public policy, fine arts and the humanities.
More than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University receive an education
characterized by a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation, and creating and implementing solutions to
real problems. A small student-to-faculty ratio provides opportunity for close interaction between students and
faculty.
Carnegie Mellon University’s eighth president, Jared L. Cohon, is leading a campus-wide effort that aims to
leverage the university’s strengths to impact the world in the fields of biotechnology, information and security
technology, environmental science, the fine arts and the humanities.
The university also is committed to broadening and enhancing undergraduate education to allow students to explore
various disciplines while maintaining a core focus in their primary area of study. Realizing that today’s graduates
must understand international issues, Carnegie Mellon University is committed to providing a global education for
its students and is striving to expand its international offerings to increase its presence on a global scale. Increasing
diversity in all aspects and fostering the economic development of southwestern Pennsylvania are also top priorities.
Carnegie Mellon University’s schools and programs in computer science, engineering, business, public policy,
science, the arts and the humanities are consistently ranked among the best in the country by national publications
such as U.S. News & World Report, Business Week and Newsweek magazines, and the Wall Street Journal. In its
2007 college guide, Newsweek named Carnegie Mellon University among the “New Ivies” for its “exceptional
academic programs and campus offerings that have seen a rise in stature to rival the Ivy League and other traditional
academic powerhouses in competing for the nation’s top students.”
Carnegie Mellon University’s unique mix of strengths in technology, business, public policy and the arts is
distinctive among national research universities. The university’s fine arts programs are world renowned. Its School
of Drama has produced many well-known, award-winning stars of stage and screen since granting its first degree in
drama in 1917.
The university consists of seven colleges and schools: The Carnegie Institute of Technology (engineering), the
College of Fine Arts, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the H. John Heinz III College, the Mellon
College of Science, the School of Computer Science and the Tepper School of Business. In addition to the
Pittsburgh campus, Carnegie Mellon University has a campus in Silicon Valley, Calif., where it offers several
graduate programs and an undergraduate campus in the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar, where it offers degrees in
business, computer science and information systems. Carnegie Mellon University also has educational partnerships
in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and Australia.
Carnegie Mellon University is one of the most technologically sophisticated campuses in the world. When it
introduced its “Andrew” computing network in the mid-1980s, it pioneered educational applications of technology.
The “Wireless Andrew” system, developed in the mid-1990s and recently updated covers the vast majority of the
144-acre campus.
Industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Technical Schools in 1900 for the sons and
daughters of Pittsburgh blue-collar workers. The institution became the degree-granting Carnegie Institute of
Technology in 1912 and in 1967, Carnegie Tech merged with Mellon Institute to become Carnegie Mellon
University.

The core values that Carnegie instilled in the Carnegie Technical Schools more than 100 years ago—problem
solving, collaboration and innovation—continue to drive the university today.
As defined by the Clery Act, Carnegie Mellon University operates separate locations in Adelaide, Australia; Doha,
Qatar; Los Angeles, CA; Silicon Valley, CA; and New York, NY.

Why an Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report?
Federal Legal Requirements—The Clery Act
Enacted in 1990, Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crimes Statistics Act (“Clery Act”) was
designed to assist students in making decisions which affect their personal safety and to make sure institutions of
higher education provide students, prospective students and faculty with the information they need to avoid
becoming the victims of campus crime. The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 expanded institutions’
obligations under the Clery Act and created new responsibilities concerning fire safety. The Clery Act requires
colleges and universities to:
        Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of campus crime statistics and
        certain campus security policy statements.
        Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of fire statistics (beginning in
        2009) for on-campus student housing facilities and certain campus fire safety policy statements.
        Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the
        campus, and certain non-campus facilities. The statistics must be gathered from campus police or security,
        local law enforcement and other university officials who have “significant responsibility for student and
        campus activities.”
        Provide “timely warning” notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing “threat to
        students and employees.”
        Disclose in a public crime log any crime that occurred on campus or within the patrol jurisdiction of the
        campus police or the campus security department and is reported to the campus police or security
        department.
        Disclose in a public fire log any fire that occurred in an on campus student housing facility, by date the fire
        occurred.


State Legal Requirements—The College & University Security Information Act
The Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act (18 P.S. § 20.101 et. seq.), requires colleges and universities to:
        Report to the Pennsylvania State Police on an annual basis crime statistics for publication in the FBI’s
        Uniform Crime Report, which collects data on additional categories of felony and misdemeanor crime.
        Report crime rates for all reportable offenses.
        Provide the numbers of enrolled students and employees.
        Disclose information and security policies on the types of available student housing, admission of visitors
        to housing facilities, measures to secure entrances and standard features to secure room doors.

The Carnegie Mellon University Police Department is responsible for preparing and distributing this report. It works
with many other departments and agencies, such as the Division of Student Affairs, the Student Life Office and the
Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to compile the information. This report provides crime statistics for calendar years 2009,
2008 and 2007 and fire statistics for calendar year 2009.
All community members are encouraged to use this report as a guide for safe practices on and off campus. It is
available on the Web at www.cmu.edu/police/images/2010asr.pdf. Each member of the university community
receives an email that describes the report and provides its Web address. For a paper copy of the report, contact the
Carnegie Mellon University Police Department at 412-268-6232 or campuspd@andrew.cmu.edu.


PART II: PITTSBURGH, PA CAMPUS

The Carnegie Mellon University Police Department—Who We Are
The Carnegie Mellon University Police Department is the primary department at the university charged with
creating a safe and secure environment. This task, however, is not one we can accomplish alone. Crime prevention,
risk identification and problem solving are the responsibilities of everyone. We ask you to join us in these efforts by
reading this report and referring to it often.
Our efforts to maintain a safe and secure environment rely on our ability to develop collaborative relationships with
the many communities that make up the university. We hope you will find this report informative and helpful, and
that your time at Carnegie Mellon University will be both pleasant and safe. If you have questions or would like
further information about safety and security at Carnegie Mellon University, please visit our website at
www.cmu.edu/police/.
Located at 300 South Craig Street, Room 199, the University Police Department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a
year. The telephone number for emergency calls on campus using the university’s phone system is 8-2323, or 412-
268-2323 when off-campus or when using a cell phone or other non-university phone. The telephone number for
routine business and informational, non-emergency inquiries is 8-6232 or 412-268-6232 when off-campus or when
using a cell phone or other non-university phone.
The department consists of 24 professional police officers and 37 security guards along with 18 other team members
dedicated to providing first-class service to the community. Officers and guards patrol the campus on foot, by
bicycle, and in vehicles. Several officers, guards and a supervisor are on duty 24 hours a day. The Communications
Center is staffed with trained dispatchers who answer calls for service, dispatch officers and other emergency
services to incidents, and monitor intrusion detection and fire alarms.



Campus Policing and Security Policies
Law Enforcement Authority
The University Police Department is made up of sworn/commissioned police officers and non-sworn security
guards. The sworn police officers derive their law enforcement authority from the Constitution of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Article 6, and from Statute, 22 Pa. C.S. § 50, Section 501 of the Act of November
15, 1972, P.L. 1063 No. 271 (also known as Act 501). Act 501 gives university police officers “...all the powers of a
police officer in the Commonwealth, in and upon, and in the immediate and adjacent vicinity of, the property of the
corporation.” All police officers are required to complete a basic police academy training course approved and
authorized by the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Commission. Officers also are
required to attend mandatory in-service training throughout the year to enable them to perform more efficiently and
safely. The Carnegie Mellon University Police Department became the first state accredited campus police agency, a
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                                 7




highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence. The department was in full compliance with
all applicable standards in order to attain accredited status. The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation
Program contains 123 standards and 184 sub-standards. For more information, go to www.cmu.edu/police/.
The non-sworn security guards receive orientation training in areas such as cultural diversity, building security, key
control, procedures related to arrests by police officers and patrol procedures. Guards also train in specialty areas
including medical emergencies and hazardous wastes, and assist police officers in all of these areas. Security guards
supplement university police officers by patrolling academic buildings every night of the year and are authorized by
Title 18 Pa. C.S. § 508 to assist a police officer in effecting an arrest.
On weekdays throughout the year, two parking enforcement/traffic officers patrol university parking lots and
garages both on and off campus in marked vehicles, assist stranded and disabled motorists and perform traffic
direction and crowd control duties during special events.
A number of university police officers and security guards are certified Pennsylvania Emergency Medical
Technicians (EMTs). All police officers and guards are trained in CPR, First Aid/First Responder and the use of
AEDs (automatic external defibrillators).


Interagency Cooperation
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the Allegheny County Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police are the
major elements in a crime-prevention network that includes the campus police departments of all Pittsburgh colleges
and universities. Students attending Carnegie Mellon University benefit from the cooperative relationship that
University Police enjoys with federal, state, county and city police agencies. The University Police Department
relies on these relationships for support on several levels. In addition to passing critical information among one
another, the University Police Department has immediate contact with the Pittsburgh Emergency Operations/911
Center. This arrangement allows unfettered access to mutual aid and support from the Pittsburgh Police, the
Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire and the Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Service. Pittsburgh city officers regularly patrol
the city streets that border and pass through campus, and often work at large annual events, as well as special events,
that occur on campus.

It is critically important that all crimes occurring on campus or in/on university owned or leased off-campus
buildings and property be immediately reported to University Police to ensure that appropriate action is taken. For
each incident reported, an investigation is conducted and a file is created. Crimes can be reported at any time of day
or night seven days a week:
         In person, at the University Police office at 300 South Craig Street, Room 199, OR
         By calling University Police at 8-2323/412-268-2323 or by using one of the 72 emergency phones on
         campus.
All students, faculty, staff and guests are encouraged to promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and other
emergencies to the University Police Department. University Police take reports of all crimes that occur within our
jurisdiction with one exception. Reports of stolen motor vehicles are immediately referred to the Emergency
Operations Center of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. University Police will take an internal report of the incident,
but Pittsburgh Police will be responsible for entering the specifics about a stolen vehicle into the FBI’s National
Criminal Information Center (NCIC) computer system and conducting any follow-up investigation. Forcible sexual
assaults where the perpetrator is a stranger will also be reported to the Pittsburgh Police and investigated jointly with
University Police.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                            8




To further encourage the timely reporting of crimes on campus, the following persons have been designated as
“campus security officials” to whom incidents may also be reported:
        Dean of Student Affairs
        Assistant Deans of Student Affairs
        Associate Dean of Student Affairs & Director of Student Life
        Associate Director of Student Life for First-year Houses
        Associate Director of Student Life for Upperclass & Greek Houses
        Coordinator of Community Standards
        Coordinator of Sexual Assault Advisors
        Director of Student Activities
        Housefellows
        Director of Housing & Dining Services
        Chief Human Resources Officer
        Members of the University Police Department
        Director of Athletics and Physical Education
        Varsity athletic team coaches


In addition, community advisors and resident assistants play a key role in maintaining a safe and secure environment
in the residence halls. Community advisors and resident assistants are responsible for:
        reporting criminal activity in the residence halls,
        maintaining appropriate documentation of incidents that occur in the residence halls; and
        responding to any emergency situations that may arise in the residence facility.
When appropriate, staff from Housing, Student Affairs and University Police may be involved in answering a call
for assistance or responding to reports of criminal activity.


Emergency Phones
The university has installed 72 two-way emergency phones—yellow call boxes or pedestal mounted “blue light”
phones—throughout the Pittsburgh campus for use during emergencies. With the touch of a button, the caller is
immediately connected to a University Police dispatcher in the Communications Center. The location of the call is
automatically recorded and response is immediate. An emergency phone location map may be viewed at
www.cmu.edu/police/images/Campus-Map.jpg. A list of emergency phone locations is also available at
www.cmu.edu/police/reportingacrime/emergency-phones.html.


Monitoring and Recording Criminal Activity
The University Police Department relies on its close working relationships with local law enforcement agencies to
receive information about criminal incidents that students and employees may be involved in. The University Police
Department will actively investigate any crime information it receives concerning or involving a member of the
Pittsburgh campus community. If the university is notified of a situation in which a campus community member is a
victim of a crime, even if the crime occurred several blocks or miles away, the department may issue a Crime or
Safety Alert detailing the incident and providing tips so that community members have adequate information
regarding potential risks.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                               9




Access to Campus Facilities and Residences
Access to campus buildings and grounds is a privilege extended to students, faculty, staff and authorized guests.
Except for university-owned residence facilities, which are always locked, most campus facilities are open during
weekday business hours. After normal business hours, a number of academic buildings are secured by means of a
card-access system granting access only to holders of active Carnegie Mellon University ID cards or sponsored
guest cards. Individuals who wish to enter certain card-access controlled university buildings or property during
non-business hours, on weekends or for special events should contact the appropriate department administrator, the
facilities coordinator/manager for the building, Conference and Event Services or the University Police Department.


Special Procedures for Access to Residence Areas
As a private university, Carnegie Mellon University has the right to limit access to and control activities on its
campus. Carnegie Mellon University students, their escorted guests and authorized representatives of the university
are the only individuals permitted in the private areas of the residence facilities.
All Carnegie Mellon University-owned residence facilities are locked 24 hours each day and are equipped with
electronic locks. Students residing in university-owned housing receive a card programmed to provide access to
their assigned buildings and private living areas. The electronic locks require individuals to “swipe” their access
cards twice, once to pass through building entrance doors and again at their private entrances, where they must also
enter their user-specific PIN numbers in the locks’ keypads. Building access occurs through one main entrance; all
other exterior doors are considered emergency exits only. Additionally, exterior doors of all university-owned
residence facilities are equipped with either a centrally-monitored or local electronic alarm system. University Police
will respond to any alarm that indicates a forced-open or held-open door. Facilities Management Services maintains
the electronic portion of the exterior door alarms.
The five largest university-owned residence complexes have service and security desks that are staffed by student
desk attendants 24 hours each day when classes are in session. In addition to using the university issued access
cards, authorized individuals can gain building access by presenting a valid form of identification to the desk
attendant.
Non-resident visitors and guests are welcome in the residence halls, but they must be escorted by their resident host
at all times. Overnight guests are not permitted for more than two consecutive nights. Overnight guests who are not
university residents should register with the residential life staff in case of an emergency.
Hard keys are issued to students living in university-rented housing areas not equipped with electronic locks or card
readers. The keys provide exterior door and individual apartment door access.
University Police increase their patrols of residence areas during university break periods. During winter break,
Morewood Gardens residence hall and university-rented apartment facilities (i.e., Webster Hall and Fairfax
Apartments) remain open. All other residence facilities are locked and inaccessible to residents. Morewood
Gardens’ front desk remains operational over the winter break.


Housing Assignments
University housing is available for undergraduate students in on-campus residence halls and apartments, as well as
in university managed apartments in the Oakland community. Room types include singles, doubles, triples, quads,
apartments and suites. University housing facilities are co-ed, with the exception of Hamerschlag House, Scobell
House (both all male) and McGill House (all female).
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                               10




Housing assignments for first-year residents are completed through an application-based process, in order of student
admissions deposit dates. Housing assignments for upperclass students are completed through Room Selection, a
process in which residents are assigned a random room selection number, used in conjunction with their class
standing, to determine the order that students may select their housing assignment for the next academic year.
Housing assignment changes during the academic year are managed through a waitlist. All university housing
residents electronically receive a web link to “From the Ground Floor Up,” a publication that outlines housing
policies and procedures, including information on housing security and campus police.



Security Considerations in the Maintenance of Campus Facilities
Carnegie Mellon University maintains a strong commitment to campus safety and security. Exterior lighting and
landscape control is a critical part of that commitment. Representatives from various campus departments conduct
security surveys to identify areas throughout the campus where lighting appears inadequate or that may require
additional landscape control. University Police personnel assess the physical condition of campus facilities
(including landscaping, grounds keeping and outdoor lighting) on their regular patrols of university property. If
lights are discovered to be out or dim, officers report the condition to a police dispatcher who will initiate an online
work order, which is acted upon by a Facilities Management Services (FMS) representative usually within 24 hours
or the next business day. All members of the campus community are encouraged to report deficient physical
conditions to FMS by phone at 8-2910/412-268-2910, via the campus intranet, via the campus-wide email system at
pp0p@andrew.cmu.edu, or by calling University Police directly on the non-emergency number at 8-6232/
412-268-6232.
University Police and representatives from the FMS locksmith shop work together to respond to inoperative locking
mechanisms. Community members are encouraged to promptly report any locking mechanism deficiency to the
FMS Service Response Center (8-2910/412-268-2910) or to University Police (8-6232/412-268-6232).
Facilities Management Services is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via 412-268-2910. Maintenance
personnel are on-site at all times to respond to calls for emergency maintenance service regarding unsafe facility
conditions or those raising concerns for personal safety and property protection. These conditions may include
unsafe steps or handrails, unsafe roadways on campus and unsecured equipment. An FMS representative can usually
respond to the site of the emergency request within 30 minutes of the report regardless of the time of day.
All unsafe conditions relating to student residence areas should be directed to Housing Services in person at the
Housing & Dining Services office located on the ground floor of Morewood E-Tower, by phone to 8-2139/412-268-
2139 during business hours, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays and breaks). After hours,
unsafe conditions and emergencies can be reported to 8-2910/412-268-2910.



Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime, safety and/or emergency issues, the University Police Department, in conjunction
with other departments on campus, from time to time, issues alerts to ensure that students, faculty, and staff are made
aware of serious crimes and other important events occurring on and near campus in a timely manner. Members of the
community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to University
Police so that the appropriate type of alert can be issued, if warranted. Additionally, community members are advised
to report crimes or other serious incidents to university administrators. Representatives of these offices will promptly
notify and collaborate with University Police to issue an alert, if warranted.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                                 11




“Crime Alerts” are issued to advise the community about individual crimes or a series of crimes against persons (e.g.,
an assault or robbery) or crimes against property (e.g., multiple office thefts or burglaries in residence areas) in which
the university itself or a member of the university community is a victim. University Police work closely with
individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure a victim’s privacy, to the extent possible, while also ensuring that the
community has adequate information regarding potential risks.
“Safety Alerts” are issued concerning the following: (a) temporary disruptions in public safety services (e.g., the city
911 emergency notification system), public utilities or mass transit systems; (b) serious crimes that occur in the
surrounding Oakland neighborhood, other parts of the city of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County that students are likely
to frequent, and neighborhoods where significant numbers of students live in non-university housing; and (c) crime
prevention tips prior to seasonal community events and holidays, and during freshmen orientation week and student
move-in periods to reinforce and remind new and returning students of the need to take steps to ensure their own
personal safety and the security of their belongings.
“Emergency Alerts” are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or safety of students or
employees. Emergency Alerts may be issued in response to any events that constitute an immediate threat to the
campus community, including but not limited to criminal activity, extreme weather or natural disasters. The
university’s emergency alert system is known as CMU Alert. This system notifies subscribers if there is an
incident/event on campus that threatens public safety. All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to register for the
CMU Alert service at https://my.cmu.edu/site/main/page.alert. In addition to email messages, Emergency Alerts are
sent to registered phones by voice and/or text message using the CMU Alert system.


Distribution of Crime & Safety Alerts
The University Police Department issues crime and safety alerts in two formats—hardcopy and electronic postings.
Paper alerts are posted on bulletin boards in all academic buildings and residence halls by staff from University
Police and the Student Life Office. In some academic buildings, alerts are posted on bulletin board space identified
as “For Police Use Only.” Alerts are removed 30 days after their original posting dates. Electronic postings of alerts
can be found on two university electronic b.boards—cmu.news and official.university-police. The official university
police b.board serves as an archive for all alerts posted during the current academic year and is purged following
commencement.
If there is an incident/event on campus that threatens public safety, special email broadcasts—or “blasts”—are
issued to all students, faculty and staff via the campus-wide email system and notifications are sent via the CMU
Alert system to students, faculty and staff who register their phones.



Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures
Carnegie Mellon University has procedures in place to issue emergency notifications. These messages serve to alert
the campus community of potential or actual threats to their health or safety.
Emergency notifications will be deployed as quickly as possible once there is confirmation of a serious immediate
threat to the health or safety of the campus community. These messages have been pre-scripted and will be
broadcast without delay. The deployment of these messages allow for time to evaluate the risk to our community.
The content of these notifications and their initiation will be customized to the situation.
The decision-making group for deployment of emergency messaging is made up of an Assessment Team and the
Executive Policy group. Members of these groups include: the Director of Environmental Health and Safety, Chief
of University Police, Director of Student Health Services, Director of Facilities Management Services, University
Registrar and Carnegie Mellon University Vice Presidents.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                             12




In the event of an emergency constituting an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, the
Assessment Team will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of
the emergency notification and initiate the emergency notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the
professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or
otherwise mitigate the emergency.


Procedures for Emergency Alerts
If a serious immediate threat is confirmed, members of the Assessment Team may launch an emergency alert either
from the book of prewritten scripts or extemporaneously. All members of the Assessment Team carry instructions
on how to launch a message to cell phones, land lines and email. The launch can be accomplished either via a
website (www.alertnowlogin.com) or via telephone (800-947-1515) to our vendor. These messages are deployed
immediately.
Media Relations and the Executive Policy group are notified and additional communication pieces are crafted for
follow up information to the community as needed. These notices are posted on a dedicated website,
www.cmu.edu/alert.


Confirming an Emergency
Incidents are reported to University Police, which operates a dispatch center 24 hours a day, seven days week, year-
round. The phone number for University Police (412-268-2323) is widely published throughout the campus
community and all suspicious behaviors, crimes, accidents or injuries should be reported to that number. Police or
security staff is dispatched to investigate and verify reported incidents, where appropriate. Information is passed on
to the Chief of Police, members of the Assessment Team and the Executive Policy group.
Members of the Assessment Team or their designees will also seek first-hand information either from individuals at
the scene or from reliable individuals who have gained information from reliable sources.


Notification of Appropriate Segments of the Community
During the fall and spring semesters, all segments of the campus community, faculty, staff and students, receive
emergency notifications. For the summer months, when the students are not on campus, a smaller list of emergency
coordinators and floor marshals receive all notifications. This smaller group is trained to assist with further
notifications, evacuations or sheltering in place.


Determining the Content of an Emergency Alert
If a serious immediate threat is confirmed, members of the Assessment Team can launch a message either from the
book of prewritten scripts or extemporaneously.
Scripts have been drafted for: water main break, power outage, hazardous material spill, tornado watch, tornado
warning, suspicious package found, bomb scare, fire on campus, gunman on campus, natural gas leak, campus
evacuation, severe weather watch and severe weather warning.



                                     
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                          13




Initiation of the Emergency Alert System
Members of the Assessment Team and the Executive Policy Group are responsible for deploying Emergency Alerts.
Once the decision to issue an Emergency Alert is made and the content of the message is drafted, the actual alerts
are issued as follows:
        Voicemail & Text Messages: Several staff members from Environmental Health and Safety may launch an
        emergency alert either through a website or via phone line provided by the CMU Alert system.
        Email Broadcasts: The University Registrar, who manages official campus email communications, initiates
        the email notification system.


Titles of Departments Responsible for Issuing Emergency Alerts
        Environmental Health and Safety
        University Police
        Student Health Services
        Facilities Management Services
        Campus Affairs Division
        Student Affairs
        Media Relations
        University Registrar’s Office
        Office of the General Counsel


Disseminating Emergency Information to the Larger Community
The Assistant Vice President for Media Relations will work with the external news media to disseminate
information to the larger community. Messages to the external community will be consistent with the messages
disseminated to the internal university community. The university’s alert website and social media outlets, Twitter
and Facebook, are accessible to the greater community as well.


Testing of Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures
The university tests its emergency notification system once during the fall semester and once during the spring
semester, only if the system was not implemented during that semester. The tests are announced in advance to the
university community via internal communication outlets, including a campus-wide email. The test is also used to
encourage individuals to register for the emergency notification service. If the system was implemented during the
semester, the university has decided to treat the implementation as an unannounced test.
Following the test, results are documented and necessary adjustments are made.

Missing Student Notification
In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, Carnegie Mellon University has adopted a
Missing Student Notification Protocol, which is available at: www.studentaffairs.cmu.edu/theword/.


Confidential Contact
Under this protocol, each student may elect to register a Confidential Contact person who will be notified by
Carnegie Mellon University if the student is determined to be missing. Confidential Contact information will be kept
confidential and will only be accessible by authorized personnel in furtherance of a missing person investigation or
in the case of a health or safety emergency. Students who wish to register a Confidential Contact for notification
through the missing student protocol may do so by logging into Student Information Online (SIO) at
www.cmu.edu/hub/sio and updating their Parent/Guardian information under the “My Info” tab.


Missing Student Procedures
Any community member may contact the University Police or Dean of Student Affairs Office at any time to report
concern that a student may be missing. If the report did not originate through University Police, the information will
be immediately conveyed to University Police to begin an investigation.
If the University Police investigation determines that the student is missing, the university will notify the student's
Confidential Contact no later than 24 hours after the determination that the student is missing. If the missing student
is under the age of 18 and not emancipated, the university will contact a custodial parent or guardian, in addition to
the Confidential Contact. The university will also notify the appropriate local law enforcement agency within 24
hours of the determination that the student is missing.


Daily Crime Log
The University Police Department maintains a daily crime log that records, by the date the incident was reported, all
crimes and other serious incidents that occur on campus, in a non-campus university owned or controlled building or
property, and on public property that is within campus or immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus.
The Daily Crime Log—also known as the Student Right to Know Report—is available for public inspection at the
department’s Communications Center located at 300 South Craig Street, Room 199. The Daily Crime Log includes the
nature, date, time and general location of each crime reported to us, as well as the disposition of the complaint, if that is
known at the time the log is created. The department posts specific incidents in the daily crime log within two business
days of receiving a report of an incident. The department reserves the right to exclude crime report information from
the log in certain circumstances.



Safety Education and Awareness
Preventing Crime through Building Partnerships
While crime prevention is a top priority of the University Police Department, the department cannot protect everyone
everywhere at all times. Thus, every member of the community is invited to partner with the department in this
important effort. Together with other campus offices, the department provides programs to enhance personal safety,
teaches proactive crime reduction strategies and helps community members develop personal safety habits, which
contribute to a healthy community.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                                15




The department’s crime prevention strategy rests on a multi-layered foundation of proactive area patrol of the campus,
crime prevention education and training, building and area security surveys and property registration. This approach
relies on the dual concepts of eliminating or minimizing criminal opportunities, whenever possible, and encouraging
community members to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety.
Throughout the year, members of the department’s Crime Prevention Unit are available to assist any individual or
group in planning, presenting and coordinating programs of interest or concern, or conducting safety and security
seminars in residence halls, department offices and any other setting both on and off campus. These seminars can be
tailored to meet the needs of the group and can be arranged by calling the University Police at 8-6232/412-268-6232
or by emailing campuspd@andrew.cmu.edu. Listed below are some of the programs and services offered by the
department:
Rape Aggression Defense (RAD): The University Police Department offers the Rape Aggression Defense System
(RAD) program to women in the university community. This self-defense class, designed specifically for women, is
a nationally recognized twelve-hour course that teaches women the skills that can help prevent and survive a violent
attack. The department usually offers a RAD program twice each semester during the regular academic year. In
partnership with the Athletic Department, the University Police Department also offers RAD as a 3-unit course to all
registered students. For more information on RAD at Carnegie Mellon University, go to www.cmu.edu/police/.
S.A.F.E.: S.A.F.E. (Self-Defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange) is another nationally recognized
educational awareness program that provides teenage & adult women with information that may reduce their risk of
exposure to violence and introduces them to the physical aspects of self-defense. S.A.F.E. is two-hours in length and
presented on an as-requested basis to small groups on campus.
Operation Identification: This is a nationally recognized property identification program open to all members of
the university community. As part of the Pennsylvania Crime Watch Program, Operation Identification’s goal is to
deter thefts and burglary and aid in the recovery of stolen items by encouraging the engraving of personal
identification numbers on valuable property, and tracking important identifying information about such items.
Thieves tend to shy away from property with engraved numbers due to the difficulty of selling it on the open market.
If an item is stolen and later recovered, the identification number will assist law enforcement agents in returning it to
its rightful owner. For information on participating in Operation Identification at Carnegie Mellon University, go to
www.cmu.edu/police/.
Campus Crime & Safety Alerts: An alert is released by the department any time a crime or other serious incident
affects the safety of the community. See page 10 under Timely Notices – Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts.
Emergency Phones: These two-way call boxes are located strategically around campus. They allow an individual in
need of assistance to speak directly with a University Police dispatcher. Activation of the call button on either the
yellow box style or pedestal “blue light” model immediately identifies the caller’s location, and the police dispatcher
will direct the appropriate emergency response team to the caller.


Campus Escort Services
Shuttle/Escort Service: The service consists of shuttle buses and vans that operate daily from 6:30 p.m.-6:30 a.m. (the
last run starts at 6 a.m.) throughout the calendar year. Call the Escort Service at 8-RIDE or 412-268-7433 for general
information about the Escort Service. To be picked up, riders will be requested to wait at designated pick-up locations.
Escort vehicles will provide transportation to any location within 1.5 miles of campus. Refer to www.cmu.edu/police/
for more information.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                              16




SafeWalk: If you must walk on campus after dark, SafeWalk provides two volunteers who will escort you to your
destination. Run by student volunteers and available to all members of the community, SafeWalk operates from 10
p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly during the regular academic year (except on certain holidays). This walking escort service
may be requested by calling 8-SAFE/412-268-SAFE (7233) or by approaching a SafeWalk team currently
responding to another escort call. Two-person SafeWalk teams will escort you to any location within one mile of
campus. For more information, go to www.studentaffairs.cmu.edu/student-life/safewalk/.



Alcohol and Other Drug Policies
Carnegie Mellon University policy prohibits the unlawful possession, use or distribution of alcohol and
controlled/illicit drugs by any member of the university community on university property or as part of any of its
activities. All community members are expected to fulfill their obligations and responsibilities pursuant to university
policy as well as the laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (or applicable laws for other
jurisdictions where Carnegie Mellon University operates). Applicable university policies permit taking action
beyond, or separate from, any criminal action that may be taken by authorities. Disciplinary action taken by the
university may be in addition to criminal penalties. Both students and employees are subject to applicable state and
federal laws.
The university’s Alcohol and Drug Policy is available at: www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/DrugAlcohol.html.


Alcohol Policy
Students at Carnegie Mellon University are expected to be acquainted with and abide by the laws of the United
States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (or applicable laws for other jurisdictions where Carnegie Mellon
University operates) and university regulations regarding alcohol and drugs and to be aware of the social,
physiological and psychological consequences of excessive drinking in order to make responsible and informed
decisions about the serving and consumption of alcohol. The university provides regular educational programs on
alcohol and drug abuse as well as counseling services.
The university alcoholic beverage policy is consistent with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, which
prohibit the attempted or actual possession, consumption, transportation and serving of alcoholic beverages by and
to persons less than 21 years of age. Selling or providing alcoholic beverages to a known minor, as well as
misrepresentation of age to a licensed dealer or other persons who sell or furnish intoxicating liquors are also
prohibited.


Alcohol Medical Assistance Procedure
The university community values the health and safety of its members and supports an environment that encourages
students to come to the assistance of one another. To that end, certain provisions—known as the Alcohol Medical
Assistance Procedure—have been made to ensure that responsible action is taken when a student is compromised
due to consumption of alcohol.
Students for whom medical assistance is summoned for alcohol intoxication will be granted amnesty from university
administrative disciplinary action and University Police action. The student who summons University Police or the
Carnegie Mellon University Student Emergency Medical Service on behalf of an intoxicated student will likewise be
granted such amnesty, provided the caller remains with the intoxicated student until help arrives. Students who are
directly involved in attending to the intoxicated student until help arrives also will be granted such amnesty. Those
seeking assistance will be assured that the university will pursue no further action against any individual or
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                              17




organization involved in such an incident when appropriate medical attention is sought. Students involved in an
alcohol-related incident for which amnesty is granted will be provided appropriate educational or developmental
interventions.
Amnesty applies only to alcohol violations and does not apply to other criminal activity such as assault, property
damage or presence or use of other illicit substances. In cases where help is indicated but not sought, the most severe
disciplinary action will be taken against all students involved.



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon University community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall
be able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie
Mellon University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the
clear, freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on this campus. In addition to campus educational efforts, peer influence will be central to protecting
members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault on the campus is encouraged to
contact the University Police, the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, the Student Life Office or a sexual assault
advisor immediately.
Sexual assault is prohibited by federal and state law and is an egregious violation of university community
standards. In addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University community members found in
violation of policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the university community.
The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.Carnegie Mellon University Sexual Assault Policy.


Reporting a Sexual Assault
Reporting a sexual assault may help to prevent another assault. Reporting the incident does not mean that the
survivor must proceed with criminal or university action. After finding safety following an assault, the survivor
should immediately try to document everything she or he remembers about the incident, including the physical
description of the suspect(s), any information about the identity or location of the suspect(s) and the use of any
threats or force.


What to Do If You or Someone You Know is Sexually Assaulted
         Get to a safe place – Following an assault, the primary concern is to get the survivor to a safe place. Once
         there, the survivor has several options to consider. She/he can:
         Contact someone that she/he can trust – A friend who can stay with and support her/him.
         Call a sexual assault advisor – Sexual assault advisors offer support and can make appropriate referrals
         based on the needs of a survivor. They are confidential, free and available 24 hours a day and can provide

         Seek medical attention – All survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon
         as possible after the assault to ensure their physical well being. If you need medical transport to Student
         Health Services or a local hospital, call the University Police Department at 8-2323/412-268-2323. Calling
         for transport will not result in a campus investigation unless the survivor wants to pursue an investigation.
         Even if there is no external physical injury, survivors can be tested for sexually transmitted diseases,
         pregnancy and internal trauma. Preservation of physical evidence is important to the successful criminal
         prosecution of offenders. In order to preserve such evidence, survivors should not shower, douche or
         change clothes or bedding before seeking medical attention. All clothing items should be placed in a paper
         bag and taken to the hospital. Also, if oral contact was made, survivors are asked not to brush their teeth,
         smoke or eat. Evidence can be collected at area hospitals, including Magee Women’s Hospital, 412-641-
         1000 and UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, 412-647-3333.
         If a survivor chooses, contact the University Police and/or Pittsburgh Police – Sexual assault is a crime
         and survivors have the opportunity to press charges and/or pursue action through the university. If the
         assault happened on campus, the survivor can contact University Police at 8-2323/412-268-2323. If it
         occurred off campus, she/he can contact the Sexual Assault Unit of the Pittsburgh Police at 412-323-7141.
         If a survivor chooses not to go through the criminal justice system, there are disciplinary and non-
         disciplinary options available at Carnegie Mellon University. A survivor can discuss on-campus procedures
         by calling the coordinator for community standards at the Student Life Office at 8-2142/412-268-2142.
         Consider contacting a counselor or support organization – Counselors are available through the campus
         Counseling and Psychological Services at 8-2922/412-268-2922 or through Pittsburgh Action Against
         Rape’s 24-hour help line at 1-866-363-7273. Visits to Student Health Services for medical treatment and
         counseling are confidential. Conversations with Student Health Services clinicians and counselors are not
         disclosed to anyone without the expressed permission of the person seeking assistance unless there is a
         threat of physical harm to that individual or others.


Contacting the University Police Department
Any member of the university community who wishes to file a formal criminal complaint should contact the
department at 8-2323/412-268-2323. The officer’s primary concern will be the safety of the survivor. Reporting the
incident to University Police does not mean that a survivor must file criminal charges. The survivor maintains the
ultimate decision whether to go forward with an investigation.


Contacting Other Law Enforcement Agencies
Students also may contact local law enforcement agencies. University Police Department staff and other university
officials will assist the student in notifying the appropriate agency in the applicable jurisdiction.


Filing an Internal Complaint within the University
Sexual assault cases are dealt with in a confidential, supportive and discrete manner. Any individual involved in
such an incident may contact University Police 24 hours a day at 8-2323/412-268-2323.
If you believe you have been sexually assaulted, you have options for addressing such conduct. You may wish to
first discuss the situation privately with a sexual assault advisor or a counselor. The university has a panel of sexual
assault advisors available to assist any individual involved in such an incident. These advisors include students and
staff and may be contacted 24 hours a day through the University Police at 8-2323/412-268-2323. Sexual assault

advisors can also be contacted from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays and breaks),
through the Student Life Office at 8-2142/412-268-2142. Students should feel free to contact one of these advisors
at any time to discuss an incident or a concern relating to sexual assault. Additional information about Sexual
Assault Advisors can be found at www.studentaffairs.cmu.edu/student-life/saa/advisors/saa-list.pdf.
The University Committee on Discipline (UDC) is an avenue for resolving allegations of sexual assault and/or
sexual harassment. Specific information regarding the UDC is outlined in the student handbook. Mediation is also
available, at the option of the complainant, for the resolution of these cases, although it is typically not
recommended.
Judicial review is initiated by filing a report with the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, the Student Life Office
or the filing of a report by University Police detailing the university regulation or policy that the complainant
believes has been violated and providing information that substantiates the facts and circumstances. Complaints may
be filed by a student, faculty or a staff member when the individual believed to have violated university policy is a
registered student of Carnegie Mellon University.
The university’s process is designed to afford a complainant (the person who is bringing a charge) and a respondent
(the person who is answering a charge) a fair, prompt and appropriate resolution process. The process is designed to
help persons who need support as they address these incidents and incorporates both informal resolutions and formal
disciplinary procedures.
No disciplinary or other action is taken in such cases without the clear, informed agreement of the individual
bringing the charge forward. The university provides advice and emotional support to assist any individual in better
understanding and pursuing the matter. In addition, the university provides direct medical treatment and counseling,
referral to additional medical and counseling support where appropriate and other support to any individual involved
in such an incident.
Both the accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during any
disciplinary proceeding. Both the complainant and respondent have the right to have one person—another student, a
faculty or staff member, parent or legal counsel—participate in any hearing as an advisor. Character witnesses, those
speaking on behalf of the interest of the party charged, may also be present. All materials related to any disciplinary
process will be provided for review to the student pressing charges and the student charged consistent with the
privacy rights of those involved. Both the complainant and respondent will be informed of the outcome of
proceedings in accordance with the procedures outlined in the student handbook. Records of disciplinary actions
following the process will not be released at any time without the consent of the student charged or as required by
law.
During any sexual assault complaint proceeding, the university has a wide range of latitude when determining
sanctions. Those sanctions will be guided by the interests of the community, the impact of the violation on the
victim(s), documented judicial history and any mitigating or aggravating circumstances, and may range from verbal
warning to expulsion from the university.



Changing Living and Academic Situations
If a Carnegie Mellon University student who is a survivor of sexual assault or relationship violence is concerned
about the safety of her/his living situation and lives in university residence facilities, the student may request to be
moved to an alternate location. Additionally, the university can assist with any academic arrangements the
survivor’s situation may require.

Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement
advising the campus community where information concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. The
Carnegie Mellon University Police Department currently works in cooperation with the Pennsylvania State Police
Megan’s Law Unit to receive information on current registered sex offenders residing within the university
community. Information regarding registered sex offenders in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania may be obtained
by accessing the Pennsylvania State Police webpage at www.pameganslaw.state.pa.us/ or by calling the Megan’s
Law Section of the Pennsylvania State Police at 1-866-771-3170.



Sexual Harassment
Carnegie Mellon University is committed to maintaining a learning and work environment free from sexual
harassment. Carnegie Mellon University is dedicated to the free exchange of ideas and the intellectual development
of all members of its community. For this exchange and development to take place freely, the institution promotes
the confidence to work, to study, to innovate and to perform without fear of harassment.
Sexual harassment is specifically prohibited by Carnegie Mellon University. The definition of sexual harassment as
formulated by the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has been adapted for our
educational environment. The adapted EEOC definition is: any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual
favors or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:
  1. Submission to such conduct is an explicit or implicit condition of employment, or of evaluation or advancement
        of a student; OR
  2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for an employment, evaluation or advancement
        decision; OR
  3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or
         creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
All members of the university community are expected to take reasonable measures to prevent and discourage any
sexual harassment from occurring; prevention should, in particular, be a guiding concern for all involved in any
proceedings under this policy. Any student, faculty or staff member found to have violated this policy by engaging
in conduct constituting sexual harassment will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, which may include
dismissal, expulsion or termination in sufficiently serious cases.
In support of its commitment to maintain an environment free of sexual harassment, the university makes sexual
harassment advising as widely available as possible. To that end, the university assigns special responsibility to the
persons on its Panel of Sexual Harassment Advisors. The university also provides multiple avenues, both formal and
informal, for addressing incidents of sexual harassment. Informal resolution may involve the assistance of sexual
harassment advisors, supervisors or other administrators.
Any member of the university community, who believes she or he has been subjected to sexual harassment or knows
of the occurrence of probable sexual harassment, is strongly urged to immediately contact one of the sexual
harassment advisors or policy coordinators directly. A list of sexual harassment policy coordinators and advisors and
the telephone number for the sexual harassment hotline can be found at: www.List of sexual assault advisors.
Because of the sensitivity of sexual harassment issues, an advisor will then promptly endeavor to thoroughly review
the matter with the person making the allegations to determine whether sexual harassment appears to have occurred,
and proceed, in consultation with the person having brought the matter to the advisor and a sexual harassment policy
coordinator, to take or recommend appropriate action.

Workplace Violence
Carnegie Mellon University is committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff
and visitors. Threats or acts of violence against anyone on property owned or controlled by the university will not be
tolerated. Such behavior may result in criminal arrest and prosecution and/or disciplinary action, up to and including
dismissal, against the perpetrators whether they are students, faculty or staff.
Any person who makes threats or engages in violent behavior while on property owned or controlled by the
university may be removed from the premises as quickly as safety permits. They may be required to remain off
university premises pending the outcome of an investigation. Any university student, faculty or staff member who
violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with university policies and procedures
applicable to students, faculty and staff. Threatening behavior may include—but is not limited to: hitting, shoving,
sexual assault, attacks, stalking, verbal or nonverbal threats, vandalism, arson and carrying a weapon of any type
(regardless of whether the owner is licensed to carry it or not) or explosives.


Reporting
All members of the university community have a responsibility to report threatening or violent behavior, whether
that behavior is exhibited by a member of the Carnegie Mellon University community or by visitors to the campus.
Any employee who becomes aware of, or believes that he or she has witnessed an incident of violent or threatening
behavior, or who is the recipient of threatening and/or violent behavior, should immediately report such incident(s)
to University Police and the employee’s supervisor, the supervisor’s manager or Human Resources.
Individuals should also notify University Police at 8-2323/412-268-2323 if the employee believes that someone may
be in imminent danger or if the incident in question resulted in anyone being physically harmed. Such behavior
should be reported regardless of the personal or professional relationship between the apparent perpetrator and
victim.
In order to protect the reporting individual(s) as well as the alleged offender from possible retaliation, a report of
threatening and/or violent behavior is disclosed only to those accepting the report, to individuals with a need to
know, to law enforcement and as required by law or court order.


Protection From Abuse/Restraining Orders
All individuals who apply for or obtain a temporary or permanent Protection From Abuse Order or Restraining
Order listing any Carnegie Mellon University location as a protected area must provide University Police with a
copy of the order. The University Police Department understands the sensitivity of this information and respects the
privacy of the reporting person. Procedures are in place to maintain the confidentiality of the information.

Crime Statistics
How We Compile These Statistics
The Carnegie Mellon University Police Department collects crime statistics disclosed in the charts of this report
through a number of methods. Police officers enter all reports of crime incidents made directly to the department
through the Automated Records Management System (ARMS). After an officer enters the report in ARMS, a
department supervisor reviews the report to ensure it is appropriately classified in the correct crime category. The
department periodically examines the data to ensure that all reported crimes are recorded in accordance with the
crime definitions outlined in the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook, the FBI National Incident-based
Reporting System Handbook (sex offenses only) and U.S. Department of Education Handbook for Campus Crime
Reporting.
The University Police Department maintains a close relationship with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to ensure that
notification occurs of any crime occurring on university owned property. The Crime Analysis Unit of the Pittsburgh
Police provides electronic copies of all crime alerts issued to city police personnel concerning crimes occurring in
the adjacent neighborhoods (as required by the Clery Act) on a regular basis, and provides annual statistics on all
crimes required to be reported under the Clery Act and Pennsylvania Acts 73 & 180.
Definitions of reportable crimes are provided in Appendix A, page 53.

* Crimes reported in the residential facilities column are a subset of the on-campus category.
** One sex offense reported in 2007 allegedly occurred in 2005.
*** Several alleged incidents of forcible sex offenses in 2008 and 2007 were reported as occurring “on campus” and did not provide sufficient
information to determine whether the alleged incident occurred in a residential facility.
**** In prior years the university has incorrectly counted individuals granted amnesty under the Alcohol Medical Assistance Procedure as liquor
law disciplinary actions. Under the Clery Act, students who are not disciplined (i.e., granted amnesty) are not counted as disciplinary actions. The
2007 Liquor Law Disciplinary statistics include students who were granted amnesty. The 2008 Liquor Law Disciplinary statistics have been
amended from prior reports to remove amnesty cases. In 2008, there were 24 alcohol amnesty cases. In 2009, there were 44 alcohol amnesty
cases.

A Note on Sex Offenses
It is widely understood that incidents of sexual assault are historically under-reported in all communities. Carnegie
Mellon University is committed to providing education to the university community regarding the risk and
prevention of sexual violence. Its caring faculty, staff and corps of trained sexual assault advisors are prepared to
provide support to those affected by acts of sexual violence.
Although the following alleged incidents of sexual assault are not required to be reported under the Clery Act, we
are providing them here in the interest of being all-inclusive. For 2007, an additional five incidents of sexual assault
were reported, four of those allegedly occurred “off campus,” and one report did not provide a location.

reported to University Police to ensure that appropriate responsive action is taken. Fires may be reported at any time
of day or night seven days a week:
         By calling University Police at 8-2323 or 412-268-2323 or by using one of the 72 emergency phones
         on campus.
         In person at the University Police office at 300 South Craig Street, Room 199.



Daily Fire Log
In conjunction with the daily crime log (see page 14), the University Police Department also maintains a daily fire log
that records, by date the fire was reported, any fire that occurred in an on-campus student housing facility. The fire log
includes the nature, date, time and general location of each fire.



Fire Safety Systems in Residence Facilities
All student residence facilities that are owned by the university comply with City of Pittsburgh Fire Codes as well as
the International Fire Codes for residential occupation. All dormitories are equipped with full-coverage sprinkler
systems, have automatic smoke detection and have portable fire extinguishers throughout. All buildings have dual
reporting both to the City of Pittsburgh’s Fire Department and to Carnegie Mellon University Police, with the
exception of a new dormitory at 4700 Fifth Avenue that reports only to the City of Pittsburgh (The university
expects to have dual reporting for 4700 Fifth Avenue in the future). All life safety systems have been designed by
fire protection engineers and passed the City of Pittsburgh’s acceptance tests when they were installed.
Student residence facilities that are under control of the university by lease meet the following requirements: all
buildings have portable fire extinguishers and emergency exit lights; all sleeping rooms have battery-operated
smoke detection; and some of the apartments (Fairfax, Webster Hall, Shady Oaks) have fire hose cabinets and
electronically supervised smoke detection systems.



Residence Facility Fire Safety Policies and Procedures
General Policies—From the Ground Floor Up
The Housing and Dining Services division of Carnegie Mellon University annually electronically publishes a
handbook entitled, From the Ground Floor Up, containing policies and procedures applicable to students living in
university residence facilities as well other helpful information concerning housing and dining at Carnegie Mellon
University. A copy of From the Ground Floor Up may be found at: www.From the Ground Floor Up.

Policy on Portable Electrical Appliances
General Policy: No electrical appliances that incorporate unshielded heating elements or draw more than 700 watts
may be used in student rooms. Hot plates or toaster ovens of any kind are prohibited in the residence halls. Electric
irons may be used only in areas where utility outlets are provided, such as in designated utility or laundry rooms.
Microwave Ovens: Only compact microwave ovens under 700 watts are permitted.
Refrigerators: Residents may bring their own mini-refrigerators to campus as long as they are smaller than 4.5
cubic feet and operating on 110/120 VAC. Residents who do not remove personal mini-refrigerators at closing will
have their student account charged $40 per hour for removal and $60 for refrigerator disposal.
Air Conditioners: Students may not bring air conditioners into residence facilities without permission from
Housing and Dining Services and proper documentation of a medical need for air conditioning. Details about the
procedure for requesting permission for an air conditioner are available in From the Ground Floor Up.


Policy on Open Flames
Open flames or burning materials of any kind, including candles, incense and other combustibles, are absolutely
prohibited in university residence facilities.


Smoking Policy
All university residence facilities are designated smoke-free with the exception of Fairfax Apartments and Webster
Hall. Carnegie Mellon University has a vital interest in maintaining a healthy and safe environment for its students,
faculty, staff and visitors while respecting individual choice. It is Carnegie Mellon University’s policy to provide
smoke-free areas to the maximum extent possible. Where the desire of a smoker to smoke conflicts with the desire
of another to have smoke-free air, the desire to have smoke-free air takes priority. Smoking is permitted in Fairfax
Apartments and Webster Hall as long as all of the residents of the room agree.
In addition to the smoking policy as summarized above, the university has an official Smoking Policy applicable to
the entire campus. This policy is available at: www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Smoking.htm.



Procedures for Evacuating Residence Facilities
City of Pittsburgh Ordinance and University Policy require a complete evacuation of a building upon activation of
the fire alarm system. All residents should know two ways out of a building, the primary escape route (the most
direct and shortest distance) and a secondary escape route. Do not use the elevators as an escape route. Upon
hearing the fire alarm activate, assess the viability of your primary escape route and if it is safe to use, then proceed
with your evacuation in a quick and orderly fashion. In the event that your primary escape route is compromised,
revert to your secondary escape route. Learn your escape routes in advance of an evacuation. Take your room key
with you in case you have to return to your room during your evacuation because your escape route(s) has been
compromised. When possible, close your windows and door as you exit and turn your room’s light switch on as a
way to indicate that you have exited your room. If you encounter an open door along your escape route, close the
door when possible, however do not deviate from your primary or secondary escape route unless it is compromised.
Once you have successfully evacuated, move away from the building to the predetermined designated assembly area
for an accountability check. Do not assume that once the fire alarm is silenced it is safe to re-enter the building,
instead wait for instructions an authorized University, Police, or Fire Official that it is safe to re-enter.

Fire Evacuation Drills
The University Police Department conducts two fire evacuation drills for each residence area during the academic
year according to a schedule prepared by the Environmental Health & Safety Department’s fire safety specialist. The
university requires complete evacuation of buildings during a fire alarm. Individuals who ignore fire alarms and
required evacuations may face disciplinary action. Since false alarms may lower the evacuation response from
students, the university will analyze the causes of false alarms and work to reduce their occurrence. By reducing the
number of false alarms, the University Police Department hopes to maintain students’ diligence in responding.



Fire Safety Education and Awareness
The university’s Fire Safety Program strives to incorporate education, awareness and training through various
methods. Fire safety brochures are distributed to students living in three types of housing; residence halls, Greek
housing and off-campus housing. These brochures cover a variety of fire safety topics such as cooking safety,
electrical safety, fire prevention methods and fire protection systems. They also provide guidelines to be followed in
emergency situations. Basic evacuation instructions that can apply to academic/administration buildings in addition
to residence facilities are explained.
 A live mock dorm/bedroom burn is conducted early in the first semester of the school year. The goal is to impress
upon the student population the power that a fire possesses, the speed at which a fire can travel and the growth
potential when combustibles are available. In two minutes an ordinary residence room containing common
household commodities was transformed into a fully involved room fire. This demonstration is meant to teach the
student population how to make wise decisions when they hear the fire alarm activate. For those who could not
attend the demonstration, the entire video is available on the university’s Environmental Health and Safety
Department’s website.
Training is provided to all resident assistants (RA) in how to choose the proper fire extinguisher based on the class
of the fire that is burning. The P.A.S.S. acronym (pull – aim – squeeze – and sweep) is taught in a power point
presentation and then the actual hands on use of a fire extinguisher on a live fire is conducted. The fire extinguisher
training can simulate a class A, B or C fire with varying degrees of difficulty levels. The RAs are taught how to
navigate through a smoke filled environment. The training scenario varies from finding their way out of a room full
of smoke or exiting their room only to find their egress route is full of smoke.
Fire safety inspection forms for student residence buildings are available on the university’s Environmental Health
and Safety Department’s website. These forms are provided as a means of performing self inspections. The form
covers important safety related factors such as: storage, housekeeping, electrical hazards, tripping hazards and fire
protection systems. Completed forms are forwarded to the Environmental Health and Safety Department for review
and action as necessary.

Adelaide, Australia
Campus Profile
The Torrens Building in the city’s central business district is home to the Heinz College in Adelaide, Australia. It is
a heritage-listed site, formally serving as the central repository for all land titles in South Australia and is leased by
the university from the Government of South Australia. The campus is located on Victoria Square, the geographic
"heart" of the city.
The Heinz College, Australia delivers two masters programs: the Master of Science in Information Technology
(MSIT – a 12-month program) and the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM – offering two
variants: a 12-month track and a 21-month track). Enrollment for the fall 2009 semester was 107.
A wealth of facilities and services are readily accessible and the building is situated among the state’s public and
private sector head offices. The building is located on the corner of Victoria Square and Wakefield Street with
public sidewalks on either frontage.



Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
The Heinz College, Australia does not operate a campus police force. All students, faculty, staff and guests are
encouraged to promptly report criminal incidents, accidents, and other emergencies to local authorities. Crimes and
emergencies can be reported at any time of day or night seven days a week:
    •    In person at South Australia (SA) Police, Adelaide Station, 60 Wakefield Street, Adelaide (approximately
         200m from campus)
    •    By calling South Australia Police on 000 for emergencies. For non-urgent assistance, call SA Police on 131
         444. These numbers are displayed throughout the Heinz College Australia building, and students are
         advised during orientation how to determine which number is appropriate.
    •    The Torrens Building security is managed by PSSB who are housed in the State Administration Building at
         200 Victoria Square Adelaide (adjacent to the campus). The Heinz College tenancy within the Torrens
         Building at 220 Victoria Square Adelaide is managed by SA Monitoring (provided by Heinz College).
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                              32



To further encourage the timely reporting of crimes on campus, the following persons have been designated as
“campus security officials” to whom incidents may also be reported:
         Terry F. Buss, Executive Director
         Lee Battye, Director of Business Operations
         Irina Ferouleva, Programs Manager
         Ben Olijnyk, Director of ICT Services
         Debra Mules, Administrative Associate
         Diane Ovens, Graduate Program Coordinator



Access to Campus Facilities
The Torrens Building is a multi-tenant facility. It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. A
security pass (issued to each student and details recorded) is required to enter the building outside of those hours.
Entry to the university’s space within the building also requires use of a security card. The doors to the university
are locked when the front reception desk is unattended—a security pass is required to gain access.
Carnegie Mellon University does not own or lease any student residence facilities in Australia.



Security Considerations in the Maintenance of Campus Facilities
Maintenance issues during work hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily are directed to Debra Mules, which are then
directed to the building manager who organizes the appropriate service response. After hours, any issue is directed
to PSSB on 82075999, a number displayed throughout the facility. A regular check of exit lighting is carried out
under the direction of the building manager. The perimeter of the building is under security guard surveillance once
the building is locked down, which means the external doors are checked to make sure the building is secure. There
are wall-mounted cameras in the lane at the back of the building that are monitored 24 hours by PSSB. Any issues
arising from these checks are raised with the building manager and the tenancy concerned.



Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime and/or safety issues, Irina Ferouleva, the Programs Manager, and/or Debra
Mules, Administrative Associate, in conjunction with the University Police Department and other departments from
Carnegie Mellon University’s Pittsburgh campus, from time to time issues alerts to ensure that students, faculty and
staff are made aware of serious crimes and other important events occurring on and near campus in a timely manner.
Members of the community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as
possible to university administrators so that the appropriate type of alert can be issued, if warranted. “Crime Alerts”
are issued to advise the community about individual crimes against persons (e.g., an assault or robbery), or a series
of crimes against property (e.g., multiple office thefts) in which the university itself or a member of the university
community is a victim. “Emergency Alerts” are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or
safety of students or employees, such as natural disasters, extreme weather, criminal activity or other emergencies.
University administrators work closely with individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure privacy while also
ensuring that the community has adequate information regarding potential risks.
Alerts are typically distributed via email.

Crime Prevention Education and Awareness
All international students must attend a compulsory information session within the orientation program conducted
by the South Australia Police. The session provides an overview of rights and responsibilities in addition to
discussion of personal safety strategies and incident reporting. All students have access to the same information as
published on the campus website and via hard-copy SA Police publications displayed on campus.



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon University community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall
be able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie
Mellon University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the
clear, freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on this campus. In addition to campus educational efforts, peer influence will be central to protecting
members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault on the campus is encouraged to
immediately contact the South Australia Police on 131 444 or Diane Ovens, Graduate Program Coordinator on 8110
9918.
Sexual assault is prohibited by the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia and is an egregious violation of
university community standards. In addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University
community members found in violation of policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the
university community.
The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Assault.html.


What to Do If You or Someone You Know is Sexually Assaulted
         Get to a safe place – Following an assault, the primary concern is to get the survivor to a safe place. Once
         there, the survivor has several options to consider. She/he can:
         Contact someone that she/he can trust – A friend who can stay with and support her/him.
         Seek medical attention – All survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon
         as possible after the assault to ensure their physical well being. Students are advised to seek attention at
         their nearest hospital:
                  Queen Elizabeth Hospital – 8222 6000 (Woodville, western suburbs)
                  Royal Adelaide Hospital – 8222 4000 (Adelaide city)
                  Women’s and Children’s Hospital – 8161 7000 (North Adelaide, inner north)
                  International students can also contact their medical insurance provider 24 hours per day to speak
                  directly with medical professionals. The majority of international students on campus have
                  insurance with OSHC Worldcare: 1 800 814 781.
         Consider contacting a counselor or support organization – Heinz College Australia students have direct
         access to two independent counselors:
          Ms. Dahlia Enoch                              Mr. Peter Papps
          240 Grote Street, Adelaide SA 5000            Person To Person Services
          Appointments: (08) 8418 3813                  35 Hackney Road, Hackney SA 5069
          Enquiries after hours: (08) 8211 7650         Telephone: (08) 8363 5822
          counselling@dahliaenoch.com.au                admin@persontoperson.com.au

          Students may alternatively wish to contact a 24-hour Rape and Sexual Assault Service on 8226 8787.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                               34



         If a survivor chooses, contact local law enforcement – South Australia Police on 000 for emergencies.
         For non-urgent assistance, call SA Police on 131 444. University officials will assist the student in
         notifying the appropriate law enforcement agency in the applicable jurisdiction.
         If a survivor chooses not to go through the criminal justice system, there are disciplinary and non-
         disciplinary options available at Carnegie Mellon University. A survivor can discuss on-campus procedures
         by calling in the first instance Irina Ferouleva, Programs Manager, 8110 9904.



Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement
advising the campus community where information concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. Although
several Australian states and territories maintain sex offender registries for use by law enforcement officials, at this
time, none of these registries are open to public.

Education City, Qatar
Campus Profile
Carnegie Mellon University’s branch campus in Education City, Qatar offers three undergraduate degree programs;
Business Administration, Computer Science and Information Systems. Its first students were enrolled in August
2004. Enrollment for the fall 2009 semester was 246. The branch campus is located in a 460,000 square-foot
building that is owned by the Qatar Foundation (see below) and houses virtually all Carnegie Mellon Qatar
academic and administrative functions. Though predominantly a commuter campus, over 70 students live in student
housing in Education City that is owned and operated by the Qatar Foundation.
Education City, a 2,500 acre multi-institution complex in Doha, Qatar, is a gated complex that sits in a sparsely
populated section on the outskirts of Doha.
The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development is a private, chartered, nonprofit
organization, founded in 1995 by His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Emir of Qatar. Guided by the
principle that a nation’s greatest resource is the potential of its people, the Qatar Foundation aims to develop that
potential through a network of centers devoted to progressive education, research and community welfare (from the
Qatar Foundation website). To this end, the Foundation has established Education City. To date, six American
universities have established branch campuses in Education City (Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown
University, Northwestern University, Texas A&M, Virginia Commonwealth University and the Weill Cornell
Medical College).



Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
Carnegie Mellon Qatar does not operate a campus police force. All students, faculty, staff and guests are encouraged
to promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and other emergencies to local authorities. Crimes and emergencies
can be reported at any time of day or night seven days a week:
        In person at the Carnegie Mellon Qatar main security control room on the ground floor, room 1043, or at
        the Qatar Foundation main security control room at the Central Plant Building, ground floor, Room G-04.
        By calling the Qatar Foundation main security control room at +974 4454 0999, or the Qatar Foundation
        Security Watch Commander +974 5556 4701.
To further encourage the timely reporting of crimes on campus, the following persons have been designated as
“campus security officials” to whom incidents may also be reported:
        Dick Tucker, Interim Dean, grtucker@andrew.cmu.edu, office: +974 4454 8420, mobile: +974 5589 1162
        James Gartner, Senior Director of Global Security, jgartner@cmu.edu, office: +974 4454 8434,
        mobile: +974 5557 8094

Access to Campus Facilities
Students and staff are issued identification cards, which they are asked to display at all times. The cards are encoded
to provide access to authorized locations based on an access control matrix administered by the Facilities
Department.
During normal business hours (Sunday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.), the building is open to
employees, students, parents, contractors, guests and invitees. During non-business hours, access to the building,
including all classrooms, lecture halls and study rooms, is controlled through the use of University ID cards
provided to employees and students, as well as visitor ID cards issued to contractors and visitors. Normally, all
offices are locked and only authorized personnel are permitted access with proper identification. External
contractors are only allowed in the building under a “permit to work” system.
The building is controlled 24 hours a day by a security team that is managed by the Qatar Foundation. Security
guards routinely patrol the exterior and interior of campus buildings, including nights, weekends and holidays.
Security guards centrally monitor closed circuit TV cameras that are located throughout the building (interior and
exterior).
The residence facilities are under the domain of the Qatar Foundation. A security guard is at the entrance of every
residence hall. The front door of the building is open, and security is seated immediately inside. Resident students
are issued a personal entry device that allows them to enter the facility. Visitors must present proper identification
and can only enter if escorted by a resident. The residence halls are gender segregated; males are not allowed to visit
the female residence halls and vice versa. In addition, overnight guests are not permitted.



Security Considerations in the Maintenance of Campus Facilities
Facilities and landscaping are maintained in a manner to minimize hazardous conditions. The maintenance of the
campus is the responsibility of the Qatar Foundation Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) Department. The Qatar
Foundation Health, Security, Safety & Environment (HSSE) department reports to M&E, in writing, conditions that
could be hazardous. Additionally, lighting is monitored by Qatar Foundation HSSE officers and maintenance needs
are reported to the M&E department. Problems reported by visitors, students, faculty, staff custodians, are sent to
Qatar Foundation HSSE department for action.



Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime, safety or emergency issues, Dick Tucker, interim dean, in conjunction with the
Qatar Foundation Security (Director: Abdulla Al Modhaki), from time to time issues alerts to ensure that students,
faculty, and staff are made aware of serious crimes, emergencies and other important events occurring on and near
Education City in a timely manner. Members of the community who know of a crime or other serious incident
should report that incident as soon as possible to university administrators so that the appropriate type of alert can be
issued, if warranted. “Crime Alerts” are issued to advise the community about individual crimes against persons
(e.g., an assault or robbery), or a series of crimes against property (e.g., multiple office thefts or burglaries in
residence areas) in which the university itself or a member of the university community is a victim. “Emergency
Alerts” are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, such as
natural disasters, extreme weather, criminal activity or other emergencies. University administrators work closely
with individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure a victim’s privacy while also ensuring that the community has
adequate information regarding potential risks.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                             38




Alerts will typically be issued through a posting to Qatar email distribution lists. In addition, as warranted by the
emergency, the Carnegie Mellon Qatar Internal Calling Tree will be activated, whereby individuals will receive a
text message on their mobile alerting them that the Calling Tree has been activated. They will receive a subsequent
telephone call and email with full details of the message.



Crime Prevention Education and Awareness
All new faculty and staff, upon arrival to their assignment at the Qatar campus, experience a new employee
orientation that includes a security and awareness presentation by the Senior Director of Global Security covering a
broad spectrum of issues and specific recommendations. Given the social and cultural mores of the people of the
Middle East and the State of Qatar, the approach on the part of Carnegie Mellon Qatar differs somewhat from that of
the Pittsburgh campus. Rather than offering public programs and workshops, the Division of Student Affairs offers
opportunities for counseling and discourse by means of private educational sessions and counseling to students on
various personal health and wellness matters ranging from drug and substance abuse to sexual harassment and
personal safety.



Alcohol Policy
Students at Carnegie Mellon Qatar are expected to be acquainted with and abide by all applicable laws and
university regulations regarding alcohol and drugs and to be aware of the social, physiological and psychological
consequences of excessive drinking in order to make responsible and informed decisions about the serving and
consumption of alcohol. Alcohol consumption is illegal in the State of Qatar and forbidden to all Muslims. Carnegie
Mellon Qatar students are educated on the risks of alcohol abuse through counseling and private discourse with a
counselor and health and wellness specialist, mindful of the culture and social structures in the Middle East. (See
page 16 for a summary of the university’s alcohol and drug policy.)



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon Qatar community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall be
able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie Mellon
University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the clear,
freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on this campus. In addition to campus educational efforts, peer influence will be central to protecting
members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault on the campus is encouraged to
immediately contact Qatar Foundation Security as well as Jumana Al Abdi, Director of Personal Development or
Yezenia Cadena-Malek, Director of Health and Wellness.
Sexual assault is prohibited by the State of Qatar and is an egregious violation of university community standards. In
addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University community members found in violation of
policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the university community.
The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Assault.html.

What to Do If You or Someone You Know is Sexually Assaulted
        Get to a safe place – Following an assault, the primary concern is to get the survivor to a safe place. Once
        there, the survivor has several options to consider. She/he can:

        Contact someone that she/he can trust – A friend who can stay with and support her/him.

        Call a sexual assault advisor – Jumana Al Abdi, Director of Personal Development, at +974 4454 8525 or
        +974 5589 3662; or Yezenia Cadena-Malek, Director of Health and Wellness, at +974 4454 8524 or +974
        5587 9019.

        Seek medical attention – All survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon
        as possible after the assault to ensure their physical well being. Contact:
                 Office of Health & Wellness: +974 4454 8524, or +974 5587 9019
                 Hamad Women’s Hospital: +974 4439 6666
                 Qatar Foundation Medical Clinic: +974 5563 2206 or +974 4454 1244

        If a survivor chooses, contact local law enforcement – Main number to call for all ON-CAMPUS
        incidents is the Qatar Foundation main security control room at +974 4454 0999. For all OFF-CAMPUS
        incidents, callers should dial the State of Qatar emergency response at 999. University officials will assist
        the student in notifying the appropriate law enforcement agency in the applicable jurisdiction.

        If the survivor chooses not to go through the criminal justice system, there are disciplinary and non-
        disciplinary options available at Carnegie Mellon University. A survivor can discuss on-campus procedures
        by calling David Stanfield at +974 4454 8527 or +974 5589 4479.

        Consider contacting a counselor or support organization – Counseling services are available through
        the Office of Personal Development at +974 4454 8525 or +974 5589 3662. Referrals to psychological
        and/or psychiatric services in the community are also made through this office.


Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement
advising the campus community where information concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. The State
of Qatar does not maintain a sex offender registry.

Los Angeles, CA
Location Profile
Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College operates a satellite location in Los Angeles, California, as a
part of the Master of Entertainment Industry Management program (MEIM). The Los Angeles portion of the MEIM
program is located in the city of North Hollywood in Los Angeles County. The location consists of a 2,200 square
foot suite of offices in a six-story professional office building shared by other tenants, located at 4640 Lankershim
Blvd., Suite 125, North Hollywood, CA 91602. The suite of offices includes a classroom, conference room,
screening area, computer lab, kitchen and reading area. There are sidewalks surrounding the building and a garage
that is immediately next to the building on Hortense Street.
Second year students in the MEIM program attend courses at the Los Angeles location while working side-by-side
with industry professionals throughout the year as full-time apprentices in a studio or production company. (MEIM
students spend the first year of the program taking core courses at Carnegie Mellon University’s main campus in
Pittsburgh, Pa.) Approximately 15 students are enrolled at the Los Angeles campus per year.
Carnegie Mellon University does not provide housing to students in the Los Angeles portion of the MEIM program.



Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
Carnegie Mellon University does not operate a police force at its Los Angeles location. All students, faculty, staff
and guests are encouraged to promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and other emergencies to local
authorities. Crimes and emergencies can be reported at any time of day or night seven days a week to:
         Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD)
         11640 Burbank Blvd.
         North Hollywood, CA 91601
         818-623-4016
         www.lapdonline.org/north_hollywood_community_police_station

         Dial 911 for emergencies
         OR
         PACWEST Security via Kristyn Anderson at Southern California Real Estate
         714-259-9900
To further encourage the timely reporting of crimes on campus, the following person has been designated as a
“campus security official” to whom incidents may also be reported:

         Daniel Green, Program Director, 323-717-6481, dtgreen@andrew.cmu.edu.



Access to Campus Facilities
Access to the facility is by a keyless entry system. Each student has a separate entry code. When the program
director or academic advisor is in the suite, the door is unlocked. When classes are in session, the door is locked and
there is a doorbell for guests. Access to the main building after 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on
weekends, requires a code. A private entrance to the ground floor of the building can be accessed from Hortense
Street.

Security Considerations in the Maintenance of Campus Facilities
The MEIM program’s Los Angeles facility has a keyless entry system and a Brinks alarm system. A private security
officer patrols the building in the evenings.
Unsafe conditions and repairs should be directed to the Program Director, Daniel Green; or the Real Estate Manager,
Kristyn Anderson, Southern California Real Estate Service, 15901 Red Hill Avenue, Suite 205, Tustin, CA 92780,
714-259-9900.


Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime and/or safety issues, Daniel Green, Director of the Program, in conjunction with
the University Police Department and other departments from Carnegie Mellon University’s Pittsburgh campus,
from time to time issues alerts to ensure that students, faculty and staff are made aware of serious crimes and other
important events occurring on and near campus in a timely manner. Members of the community who know of a
crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to university administrators so that the
appropriate type of alert can be issued, if warranted. “Crime Alerts” are issued to advise the community about
individual crimes against persons (e.g., an assault or robbery), or a series of crimes against property (e.g., multiple
office thefts) in which the university itself or a member of the university community is a victim. “Emergency Alerts”
are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, such as natural
disasters, extreme weather, criminal activity or other emergencies. University administrators work closely with
individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure privacy while also ensuring that the community has adequate
information regarding potential risks.
Alerts are typically distributed via email.



Crime Prevention Education and Awareness
During Welcome Week orientation in August, students are informed of security policies and procedures for the Los
Angeles portion of the MEIM program.



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon University community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall
be able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie
Mellon University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the
clear, freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on or near the MEIM program’s Los Angeles facility. In addition to educational efforts, peer influence
will be central to protecting members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault is
encouraged to immediately contact the Los Angeles Police Department (dial 911). In addition, information
concerning sexual assaults may be reported to the following departments at Carnegie Mellon University’s main
campus in Pittsburgh: University Police and the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs.
Sexual assault is prohibited by United States federal and state law and is an egregious violation of university
community standards. In addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University community
members found in violation of policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the university
community.
The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Assault.html.

What to Do If You or Someone You Know is Sexually Assaulted
        Get to a safe place – Following an assault, the primary concern is to get the survivor to a safe place. Once
        there, the survivor has several options to consider. She/he can:

        Contact someone that she/he can trust – A friend who can stay with and support her/him.

        Seek medical attention – All survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon
        as possible after the assault to ensure their physical well being. The nearest medical center is:
                 Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center, 501 S. Buena Vista St. Burbank, CA 91505,
                 818-843-5111.

        Consider contacting a counselor or Peace Over Violence’s hotline for Central Los Angeles at 213-626-
        3393. If you’re not in Central Los Angeles, you can seek assistance through the national hotline for Rape,
        Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) at 800-656-4673. The websites for the respective
        organizations are: www.peaceoverviolence.org/ and www.rainn.org/index.php.

        If the survivor chooses, contact the LAPD:
                 Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD)
                 11640 Burbank Blvd,
                 North Hollywood, CA 91601
                 818-623-4016
                 Dial 911 for emergencies
                 www.lapdonline.org/north_hollywood_community_police_station

                 Daniel Green, Program Director, will assist students in notifying the appropriate law enforcement
                 agency in the applicable jurisdiction.

        If the survivor chooses not to go through the criminal justice system, there are disciplinary and non-
        disciplinary options available at Carnegie Mellon University. A survivor can discuss on-campus procedures
        by calling Daniel Green, Program Director, at 323-717-6481.

California. Academic programs offered at CMU SV include a full-time master’s degree program in software
engineering, bicoastal master of science degree programs in information technology with specializations in mobility,
information security or software management, and a master of science in engineering & technology innovation
management; part-time master’s programs in software engineering and software management; and a bicoastal Ph.D.
program in electrical and computer engineering, with a focus on mobility. The campus is located within the NASA
Research Park, formerly Moffett Air Field, and all CMU SV activities take place in Building 23. Building 23 is
leased from NASA. The campus is located on federal government property.



Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley does not operate a campus police force, however, CMU SV is located in
the gated NASA Research Park with law enforcement provided by NASA Ames Protective Services Office Security
Police. All students, staff, faculty and guests are encouraged to promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and
other emergencies to local authorities. Crimes and emergencies can be reported at any time of day or night seven
days a week:
             In person with a Security Officer at the Main Gate located on Moffett Boulevard.
             By calling NASA Ames Protective Services at 650-604-5416 (Dispatch Office 24-Hour Non-
             Emergency), 650-604-5555 (Emergency via cell phone), or 911 (Emergency via building land-line).
        Please note, to contact NASA Ames Protective Services from a campus office phone, calls must begin with
        the number 9 (e.g., 9-650-604-5416). To connect from a campus conference room phone, calls must begin
        with the number 7 (e.g., 7-650-604-5416).
To further encourage the timely reporting of crimes on campus, the following persons have been designated as
“campus security officials” to whom incidents may also be reported:
             Martin Griss, Director of Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley, martin.griss@sv.cmu.edu
             Gerry Panelo Elizondo, Director of Student Affairs, gerry.elizondo@sv.cmu.edu
             Hector Rastrullo, Director of Business and Finance, hector.rastrullo@sv.cmu.edu



Access to Campus Facilities
Because of its unique location in the NASA Research Park, entry to the campus requires presentation of a
government-issued identification, e.g., driver’s license or passport. Additionally two security cameras surveil and
record access to the building.
The Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley campus does not have any student residence facilities.
Carnegie Mellon University 2010 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report                                              46




Security Considerations in the Maintenance of Campus Facilities
The Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley campus works with NASA Facilities, local facilities contractors and
specialized contractors for the maintenance of campus facility.
The building structure, exterior, plumbing, electrical and HVAC maintenance of the facility is provided by NASA as
leaseholder. A local janitorial and maintenance firm provides routine service or day-to-day repair. Specialized
contractors are contacted to address security alarm and lock issues.



Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime and/or safety issues, Hector Rastrullo (Director of Business and Finance), in
conjunction with the University Police Department and other departments from Carnegie Mellon University’s
Pittsburgh campus and Silicon Valley campus, from time to time issues alerts to ensure that students, faculty and
staff are made aware of serious crimes and other important events occurring on and near campus in a timely manner.
Members of the community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as
possible to university administrators so that the appropriate type of alert can be issued, if warranted. “Crime Alerts”
are issued to advise the community about individual crimes against persons (e.g., an assault or robbery), or a series
of crimes against property (e.g., multiple office thefts) in which the university itself or a member of the university
community is a victim. “Emergency Alerts” are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or
safety of students or employees, such as natural disasters, extreme weather, criminal activity or other emergencies.
University administrators work closely with individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure privacy while also
ensuring that the community has adequate information regarding potential risks.
Alerts are typically distributed to the Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley community via email and posters.



Crime Prevention Education and Awareness
In conjunction with NASA Ames and the NASA Research Park, Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley
provides an overview of NASA safety and security at New Full-time Student Orientation. In addition, Carnegie
Mellon University, Silicon Valley participates in NASA Ames sponsored programs such as NASA Security Day
plus fire and earthquake drills.



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon University community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall
be able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie
Mellon University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the
clear, freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on this campus. In addition to campus educational efforts, peer influence will be central to protecting
members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault on the campus is encouraged to
immediately contact the NASA Ames Protective Services Office Security Police at 650-604-5555 (emergency) or at
650-604-5416 (non-emergency) as well as Gerry Panelo Elizondo, Director of Student Affairs at 650-335-2846.
Sexual assault is prohibited both by United States federal and state law and is an egregious violation of university
community standards. In addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University community
members found in violation of policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the university
community.
The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Assault.html

Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
MSCF NYC does not operate a campus police force. All students, faculty, staff and guests are encouraged to
promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and other emergencies to local authorities. Crimes and emergencies
can be reported at any time of day or night seven days a week:
         In person to the New York Police Department (NYPD) at One Police Plaza, New York, NY.

Timely Warning Notices—Crime, Safety & Emergency Alerts
To inform the community of crime and/or safety issues, Diffy Paljevic, Director, MSCF NYC, in conjunction with
the University Police Department and other departments from Carnegie Mellon University’s Pittsburgh campus,
from time to time issues alerts to ensure that students, faculty, and staff are made aware of serious crimes and other
important events occurring on and near campus in a timely manner. Members of the community who know of a
crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to university administrators so that the
appropriate type of alert can be issued, if warranted. “Crime Alerts” are issued to advise the community about
individual crimes against persons (e.g., an assault or robbery), or a series of crimes against property (e.g., multiple
office thefts) in which the university itself or a member of the university community is a victim. “Emergency Alerts”
are issued in the event of a serious immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, such as natural
disasters, extreme weather, criminal activity or other emergencies. University administrators work closely with
individuals reporting serious crimes to ensure privacy while also ensuring that the community has adequate
information regarding potential risks.
Alerts are typically distributed via email.



Crime Prevention Education and Awareness
During orientation in August, students are informed of campus security policies and procedures. Students are also
informed about crime on campus and in surrounding neighborhoods. Students are given phone numbers and
addresses of the local police department, local hospital and building security. Similar information is provided to new
employees. Periodically during the academic year, Rudin Management conducts fire drills and informs staff and
students what should be done in case of emergencies.



Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault
The Carnegie Mellon University community is committed to the standard that all members of the community shall
be able to pursue their interests free from nonconsensual sexual contact. Therefore, it is a violation of Carnegie
Mellon University’s community standards to have sexual contact with any member of the community without the
clear, freely chosen consent of those involved.
All members of the university community are encouraged to take every measure available to eliminate rape and
sexual assault on this campus. In addition to campus educational efforts, peer influence will be central to protecting
members of the community from assault. Any student aware of a sexual assault on the campus is encouraged to
immediately contact the NYPD at 212-646-5000, 911 or Sex Crime Report Line at 212-267-RAPE as well as Diffy
Paljevic, Director, MSCF NYC.
Sexual assault is prohibited both by United States federal and state law and is an egregious violation of university
community standards. In addition to potential criminal prosecution, Carnegie Mellon University community
members found in violation of policy or law regarding sexual assault may be removed from the university
community. The university’s Sexual Assault Policy is available at www.cmu.edu/policies/documents/Assault.html.

What to Do If You or Someone You Know is Sexually Assaulted
        Get to a safe place – Following an assault, the primary concern is to get the survivor to a safe place. Once
        there, the survivor has several options to consider. She/he can:
        Contact someone that she/he can trust – A friend who can stay with and support her/him.
        Seek medical attention – All survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon
        as possible after the assault to ensure their physical well being. The closest hospital is:
            o    NYU Downtown Hospital, 170 William Street, New York, NY, 917-637-1000
        Consider contacting a counselor or support organization – Sex Crime Report Line: 212-267-RAPE
        (212-267-7273)
        If the survivor chooses, contact local law enforcement – NYPD, One Police Plaza, New York, NY 646-
        610-5000. University officials will assist the student in notifying the appropriate law enforcements agency
        in the applicable jurisdiction.
        If the survivor chooses not to go through the criminal justice system, there are disciplinary and non-
        disciplinary options available at Carnegie Mellon University. A survivor can discuss on-campus procedures
        by calling Diffy Paljevic, Director, MSCF NYC, 212-584-0925.
